House prosecutors to wrap up arguments


One of former President Donald Trump’s defense lawyers at his Senate impeachment trial, David Schoen, said House Democrats are presenting their case as “an entertainment package” and called their case “offensive.”

In an interview on Fox News on Thursday, he said Trump’s defense team will in part focus on the “hypocrisy” of the House Democrats’ case.

Schoen insisted Trump does not want to be associated with the breach on Jan. 6 and that senators will get “a much better picture of what’s going on here” when their team presents, starting Friday.

Lieu: Trump never showed remorse in aftermath of riot

As part of their closing argument, Democratic managers tried to portray former President Donald Trump as someone who not only invited the protestors to invade the Capitol on Jan. 6 but never showed remorse for egging the crowd on.
